    I'm trying to install windows 8 on my desktop. When I get to "where do you want to install windows?" I am getting a message of "We couldn't find any drives. To get a storage driver, click load driver." I then click load driver. Next window comes up asking me "to install the devuce driver for your drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files then click ok.. Note: installation media can be a cd, dvd or a flash drive."

    I am in BIOS now, under boot tab it says hard drive order it says no HDD..

    Someone said to me it sounds like controller is set up for IDE. I looked under advanced tab looked under drive configuration and "configure SATA AS" it says IDE, when I highlighe ide and hit enter I have the option of IDE, RAID, AHCI. Which one do I pick? Also under SATA port 0, 1, 2, 3. It says not installed. Do I need to change something there?

    Plz advise. tkx

    In BIOS, you set it to AHCI.
    However, if your BIOS says no HD, then, chcek your SATA cable, and power cable... you won't get far if the BIOS can't see the HD.
